What are people’s thoughts on living in halls at this age? Do you think I could be placed with people of a similar age group?
I’m going to UWE and hoping to live on the Glenside Campus.
What are other people’s experiences?
When i was 18 and went into halls we had 1 guy in a similar situation to you in the block next to me. He was 27 but it didnt really matter because he was decent guy everyone liked him. He was still into clubbing and everything freshers do.
So if u want to go on loads of nights out, and meet 18/19 yo's who are gunna be drunk the whole of first year itll be fine. If you want a quieter environment with decent levels of hygeine you could ask to live in post-grad block or private housing etc. maybe ring the accomodation department and ask...
I don't nor have ever gone to UWE so this is my experience at other Unis

You could ask if you could be placed in a postgraduate hall or section - that's probably the most likely way to be with others of a similar age.
I'm so glad somebody made this thread, I'm in exactly the same situation.
I'm 26 and I will be applying for uni in 2020 and I'm thinking the same thing. In my opinion, I don't think 28 is too old to be living with younger uni students and I think socially it will be totally fine but I appreciate sleep a lot more now than I did at 18 and I'm undecided about whether halls is a good idea!
I'd love to hear feedback from mature students living in halls across the country.

I was wondering the same too. I have applied to start in September and have had some offers back already. But I will be 30 by then. Wasn't sure whether they would keep an area specifically for mature students to live?
I'm going this year at 29 and living in halls, regardless of with post grads won't be my cup of tea. I will be looking at private renting of a normal flat or if available a student studio flat type deal with bills included.
